Most accidents at work are avoidable, caused by your employer’s failure to follow basic health and safety principles. Yet the hardest thing to cope with after an Oakdale accident at work is not your disappointment upon learning of your employer’s disregard for your health and safety, but your pain, suffering and loss of independence.
At the Accident Advice Helpline, we will do everything possible to speed up your recovery process and make your employer pay out for your accident. If you were not at fault – or only partly to blame – for your accident, seeking justice is simple. Our no-win, no-fee personal injury solicitors handle many hundreds of accident at work cases every year and they will be able to provide you with expert representation.
Consult with our Oakdale accident at work specialists
To discuss your case, please call our helpline and let one of our trained claims advisors advise you on your prospects of receiving compensation. If you have a strong case, and wish to go ahead with your claim, we will immediately contact your employer and their insurer and advise them to decide whether or not they wish to accept responsibility for your accident at work. While awaiting their response, we will gather the information we need to assess your injuries and value your claim. This will include sending you off for a medical examination with a specialist in your locality.
Your employer’s insurer may attempt to contact you direct to settle your claim before you have had the chance to seek our advice. However, we strongly recommend that you do not accept any early settlement offers before we have valued your claim. Some accident victims suffer long-term pain and discomfort following seemingly minor accidents and if this happens to you, you will not be entitled to make a second claim, even if it turns out that your injuries are more serious than you first thought.
Recoup the cost of all of your losses
In addition to compensation for your injuries, you will also be entitled to claim for some financial losses you have suffered, talk to your advisor about this. If your injuries are likely to have an ongoing impact on your ability to earn a living, you will also be entitled to claim for your future losses. To calculate the value of your accident at work claim before you get in touch with us, please use our 30-second test and we will provide you with a free, no obligation claim appraisal. Once you have this pick up the phone and call us to start your claim, dial 0800 689 0500 from a landline or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
